**SIGNIFICANT CHANGES to the SAVE (4+) Program at ILCC/Emmetsburg for next Fall

Please read the message below from SAVE Coordinator Michelle Kogel.  There are significant changes to the SAVE program starting next fall.  If your districts had prospective students heading there for next year, you may need to check with Michelle to see if their status has changed/ or if this is still an appropriate option for the student based on the program changes.  Please let us know if you have any questions.


There are changes within the housing department for fall 2018.

There will no longer be a structured dorm setting available to students.


The only housing option available for fall is the independent dorm setting. Students will eat meals in dining services and have the same expectations as all students living within the housing environment.


Additionally it is important to note that in the past, the college has offered a structured dorm setting which included breakfast and lunch eaten as a group rather than in dining services along with a school night evening curfew. This option will no longer be available for the 2018-2019 academic year.


SAVE is notifying school districts in order for IEP teams to be aware of this change.

When we know more, we will keep you posted.
